Living the 85MM Life and Loving It

Recently I’ve been using my 85mm lens a lot more, not just to get more use out of it but also so I can become more accustomed to the focal length, so it feels as natural to me as a 35mn lens. Every single image in this post is taken with the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG DN Art and the Sony Alpha a7C II.

For the image at the very top of the page, this was taken during the Lion Dances to celebrate Chinese New Year. Although I’m happy with the image and the 85mm worked well here, having something like the Tamron 70-180mm would have made it so much easier. I have no plans to get another tele zoom any time soon but it’s something I’d definitely consider. The first two images are of flowers I got my wife on Valentines along with a handmade card.

I used the couch to take this image as the coloring of our coach makes a great background for these types of images. The small turtle soft toy is something my wife recently got on her holiday to Sabah which is where she grew up.

The high up view of the street was taken from an apartment I was visiting and managed to get this unique view of a spot I had photographed before.

The second last image is my sister in laws dog Shadow. He’s a half Kelpie and Half border collie, also a great way to test the animal eye AF on my camera which I’d say works really well despite his color.

The final image is a Triple Chocolate cookie from a new place called Kuki that obviously sells cookies. It was my first time trying it and I really enjoyed it. Hopefully you enjoyed this post and would like to be notified of future ones, please subscribe below.
